Wout van Aert wins ahead of Mathieu van der Poel in Koksijde

Second explanation of the year between Wout van Aert and Mathieu van der Poel. The first battle between the two monsters had turned to the Dutchman’s advantage on Tuesday. Two days later in Coxyde (Belgium), the Belgian reset the counters by knocking out the competition in the 5th round of the X2o Trofee. Mathieu van der Poel finished 1’38 from the winner, Laurens Sweeck completed the podium (+2’06).

Neck and neck with Mathieu van der Poel and Laurens Sweeck after three and a half laps, Wout van Aert accelerated at the entrance to a sandy section. Nobody managed to follow him and the Belgian, carried by his public, flew to victory by relegating Mathieu van der Poel to more than a minute.
